Coming up next week for vacation and hoping to find anything from bass (SM and LM) to walleyes to panfish. Any suggestions on what's going best? And to the posters of the Turtle Lake thread, are the smallies going good there now and which part of the lake would be the best place to start?

Juggs,

The crappies are starting to "drop down" to deeper water on some of the lakes. I fished last night and found fish all over. Some were still relating to the weeds in 10' while others were located in a mid-lake basin of 20'. Check out the smaller lakes first for this happening.

Also, big pike should be up shallow and on the prowl. Cast big lures near major weed beds. Oh yeah, HANG ON!

BIG ISLAND DUDE

I was up in the marcell area last weekend and caught some real nice smallies, including an 16 incher, they were on shallow rocks 8'-2', points and in between islands. they were biteing on raps and small shiners. the best bite was in the mornin 6am-9am. caught a couple nice crappies in about 8' of water in a channel between an island and the main shore, they were biting in the evening on small fatheads. Trolling rapalas, throwing spoons and fishing suckers under a bobber, along moderate to deep weed beds are always a good bet for PIKE. They should move a tad bit shallower in the evening with the cool weather.

As for turtle lake..

Fish the rocky points. There is rocky sunkin island near gov's point that has produced for me in the past. I havent been there in a while so I am not sure what it has been like lately.

GOOD LUCK!

Greg, You mentioned that big pike should be up shallow. Does that hold true for large lakes like Pokegama? I didn't think they came up shallow until mid to late October.

      Yeah I'm planning and scouting starting next week.  Any help is appreciated.   Also a reminder....   You will need a new fishing license as of 3/1/19.  The warden often comes by to say "hi"  and chat for a bit at our gathering.   I would hate to have someone forget.   Especially me. 😉

      I got stuck on West Rush Wednesday.  Thanks to Nick?  P  from Rush City for helping me get out.  I couldn't budge.  Mike from Mike's towing was going to come out and rescue me but Nick saved me a bundle!  Thanks, Mike for being willing to come out on the ice.    Just wondering how travel is on Rush and Pokegama this weekend.  I will be hesitant go get out until the snow gets packed down on a bit.!!!

      Might want to have him call a realtor but I think there is something open in that strip mall behind McDonald's. A friend retired and closed his jewelry store and that spot might work good. I think it's called Pokegama  Plaza. Next to Edward Jones and Sears.

      Hey PRO V, you wouldn't happen to know of any office spaces for rent in rapids would you? My co worker is maybe thinking of moving our office up there if he can find a reasonable price and enough room for his cabinets.

      I am going to put a get together on Blue Lake in March!! I am thinking the second weekend at the time. My question is would Saturday or Sunday be best for most of you? This will be out of the north access as I have work on finding a good spot with active fish yet. Please let me know and if you are interested in helping find a spot with active fish. Thanks

      Thanks for the additional informations gents. Now one has to wonder if they will get stuck in a snow bank with this wonderful weather we had the past couple weeks. I might give tonight a try... Stay tuned as I'll leave a report if i make it out.
